    IPhone 4 Dropped in water now no Backlight

    My 2 year old tossed my IPhone 4 in the toilet. It was removed quickly and shaken to remove any excess water. Then it was placed into rice. I left the phone in the rice for a week and a half. The phone powers on just fine but the only way to see the screen is to hold it on an angle under light. What can I do to fix this problem if anything?

    No good!! My one year old tries to get his hands on my iPhone all the time, that's a big NO. Hopefully you can get it fixed, sounds like you need to just replace the screen? I'd call Apple.

    You can also try putting it in an air tight box like a sandwich box and fill it with as many silica gel packets as you can. With touch screens though there's not a lot you can really do...

    actually thanks for all of your comments. I opened the Iphone and found that the where the screen plugs into the board it was very corroded and will probably need to be replaced. So looks like i will be purchasing a new phone.

    I dropped my iPhone 4 down the toilet as well. I pulled it out in like a fraction of a second and everything's been completely fine with it.
